Plectranthus 'Sumcol 01'
(hardy in zones 11+)
Cats and dogs won’t go near it.
Much as we love our feline and canine friends, they can be a royal pain in the you-know-where when they carouse in our gardens. They romp around damaging plants, dig holes, and otherwise ‘do their business’ where they shouldn’t. For some reason not yet understood, furry critters absolutely detest the odour of this plant and won’t go near it. When planted three feet apart, the Piss-Off Plant will protect a whole garden. Surprisingly the plant is not particularly offensive to humans, and it does not harm children or pets. And it has succulent leaves and attractive lavender flowers. In fact, originally it was bred in Europe as an ornamental, and only later was its unique animal-repelling feature discovered.
